Read the Most Recent Peer-Reviewed Studies for TAP Oral Appliances

TAP devices are the most independently researched oral appliances on the market with more than 50 independent peer-reviewed published studies and counting.

 

Since 1997, almost all clinical trials involving the TAP have been conducted by independent investigators who do not have a financial interest in the device. These studies were funded by an outside source and not by Airway Management. We believe in the ability of our products to help patients sleep better, and we’re proud to know that the experts do, too.

Mandibular advancement reduces pharyngeal collapsibility by enlarging the airway rather than affecting velopharyngeal compliance

“Our results suggest that MADs reduce velopharyngeal collapsibility by increasing airway size as opposed to affecting velopharyngeal compliance. This contradicts the speculation of previous literature that the effectiveness ...
